Description: This is the theme song for Uncle Devin's children's book entitled, "The ABC's of Percussion." This book is an educational and fun way for children to learn about the world of percussion by identifying one percussion instrument per letter of the alphabet through beautiful illustrations – that’s 26 different percussion instruments.
The accompanying music CD brings the book to life through world beats and rhythms, as it recites the book aloud and plays each instrument. https://www.facebook.com/ABCsOfPercussionBook?ref=hl
Description: In this fun poem, 'Some Very Sensible Superstitions' David takes a fresh and much more level-headed look at some popular superstitions.
Can you get the children to find as many superstitions as they can and then change the ending to make them sensible? A great place to find a list of common superstitions is - www.csicop.org/superstition/library/common_superstitions/
There you will find old favourites such as:
'An apple a day keeps the doctor away.'
'If you walk under a ladder you will have bad luck.'
'At the end of a rainbow is a pot of gold.'
How might you make these more sensible?
Description: 'Nobody Lives Here' is a fun poem to let your children listen to. Maybe they can think of places they've been too that they never want to go back to. Explore their feelings of 'boredom'. What makes them bored? Can they write a poem about being in a place that is deserted and boring or just place boring, where nothing happens - it might be when the have to visit an aged aunt or tiresome friend of their parents.
Can they add some music to it?
